After numerous check-ups and ointments for a lid bump, says he will perform surgery (Thursday) and day of (Tuesday) says he won't touch it. Says he was never treating the bump but another infection and doesn't see the bump we had discussed every single time I was checked-up. After about $400 (that's with insurance), all I got was attitude from the doctor and STILL have a bump on my eye! Waste of time and money. Was later told a man lost his vision in one eye on his account!
